Getting access to games before the rest of the community is always a plus, EA Access has delivered on just that for its Xbox users. The developer has released the dates for Early Access to three of its games. And the selection has a little something for everybody.
This is a physics-based puzzler where you play the role of Yarny, a small creature made of (you guessed it) yarn. The goal is to use the character’s body to create lines that help you solve puzzles by climbing, swinging, crossing, and even hitching rides as you progress through the game.

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2
This is a game most of us know and love. You have to strategically use various plants that have different weapon classes to defeat an army of zombies who want to destroy green life as we know it. This new iteration boasts a new zombie version of Garden Ops (called Graveyard Ops), 6 new plant and zombie classes, and a new game mode called Herbal Assault Mode.

EA Sports UFC 2
In this mixed martial arts fighting game, you can get in the ring and pin, knockout, or make your opponent submit. This new title claims to be more realistic than its predecessor, with some added features. A few of them include “player deformation”, a new “Knockout Physics System”, and an Ultimate Team mode to give things a more dynamic feeling. The career mode has gotten some changes as well, including the addition of female fighters — a first for the series.
